After releasing the promo video last month, Honda has now launched the much anticipated CBR600RR bike in the Japanese market at JPY 16,06,000 which converts to 11,37,298.

Rumour has it, the new Honda CBR600RR is going to be a Japan-only model. While the chances of its India arrival are next to nil, it is said that even Europe markets will miss out on the new CBR600RR.

On the outside, the CBR600RR features a very CBR1000RR-R Fireblade inspired theme. For the record, the latter will arrive in India very soon. The middleweight CBR gets a very sharp-looking fairing and an aggressive front end with winglets. It also pays tribute to the original model with its underseat exhaust which is one of the key highlights of its design.
